Renowned watchmaker Carl F. Bucherer teams up with Rinspeed for the ultimate futuristic car.
Carl F. Bucherer and automotive powerhouse Rinspeed have been working together in partnership for the past ten years. What keeps the country together are their Swiss roots and a never-ending quest for new solutions, ideas and innovative technologies.
Oasis – a fascinating interpretation of the electric car
The year 2017 marks Rinspeed’s launch of the visionary concept car Oasis – a fascinating interpretation of the electric car, perfectly designed for city life. Its futuristic look is created with large glass surfaces and decorated front wheels, while the inside of the car emulates the living room of a luxury residence, outfitted with an armchair, sideboard and television. The windscreen of the car also functions as a screen for virtual and augmented reality. Directly underneath, the green area on the dashboard offers a space to cultivate living things, vegetation of flora.
The new urban car concept Oasis will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The ManeroFlyback watch
The multifunctional automatic Oasis concept also serves as a stage to unveil one of Carl F. Bucherer’s first new product launches for Baselworld 2017, the world’s largest watch and jewellery exhibition. The new ManeroFlyback is embedded within the steering wheel of the sophisticated vehicle, winding the watch and delivering energy with every movement – the ultimate watch winder.
Behind the classical rounded casing of the ManeroFlyback there is a sophisticated automatic stopwatch. By pressing the zero button it is possible to measure several time frames – one after the other – with minimal time loss. In the background the wearer can see the turning wheels of the stopwatch, which set the hands in motion again as soon as the zero-button is released, in contrast to conventional stopwatches, where the button needs to be pressed three times for a new start. The inside of the Oasis car provides the perfect backdrop for the ManeroFlyback watch. The champagne-coloured clock-face ideally complements the cognac-coloured leather watch band. A truly elegant mechanical timepiece for a modern driving cockpit.
